Good hunt guide but the rest is a scam
Oct 2018
We paid 110 euros per person for a 4 hour adventure of truffle hunt and "taste the typical produce of the area with local Barolo wines"
The reception was chaotic due to the previous day rain. They wanted to send us first to wine tasting at 10 am but we refused. In the end we went to the truffle hunt which was very good. The guide and the dog were excellent. He explained in detail all about truffles the dogs and took us for the hunt. This lasted about 1 ½ hour.
Then he told us to go to some place to test wine. When we arrived, we had to wait for 15 to 30 minute. At that point we understood that you get to taste 3 wines and get some small snack and actually we were brought there in order to buy wine. We gave up.

How did this adventure of 4 hours turn into ONE AND A HALF hours arrival and truffle hunt plus a commercial wine tasting worth 5 to 10 euros for 110 euros PER PERSON?
Very disappointed.

Hello, we are sorry to read such a review, however, every criticism is useful to improve our service. We rarely receive negative comments about our local suppliers, because they are passionate and reliable. We are glad that you appreciated the guidance of our expert truffle hunter, but we regret that you didn't enjoy the wine tasting. The winery offers many local delicacies paired with fine local wine, and clients are free to buy an excellent bottle of wine at the end of the tour. We will be more than happy to organize your next experience in Italy, we are sure you will enjoy it! The Curioseety team.
